What do you want more of in 2019?

A new year is a chance for a new start, and a time to focus on all the things you want to do, see, read, eat and try more of. After the craziness of the holidays I am keen to get back into writing. But before I jump in, I would really love to know…

Feeling fine with my fake tan

Before we set off on our holiday to Hamilton Island I knew I had to get a few things in order first; number one priority (okay, maybe not number one, but it was pretty close) was dealing with my wintery white skin. Thanks to Canberra’s brutal winter, my skin hadn’t seen the light of day…

First impressions: D-Bronzi Serum and Extended Play Lash

On a recent trip into Mecca Maxima just to pick up my Beauty Loop Box I somehow managed to also leave with two new gorgeous products to try! I spotted the much hyped new bronzing serum from Drunk Elephant and was recommended a new tubular mascara from M.A.C to test out in my never-ending quest…

The start of some serious spring cleaning

It was about time for a little spring cleaning and the perfect place to start was my overcrowded, disorganised dresser. It has been more than two years since we moved and in that time it has been a bit of a dumping ground for all my make-up, skincare, jewellery, hair ties, bobby pins, pens, receipts,…

A miniature adventure not far from home

Weeks are perfect for getting out of the house for some new adventures, especially now our son is one-and-a-half and practically running everywhere! When the winter weather is just right and it’s a nice sunny day you really can’t afford to waste it, which is why we spent last Sunday exploring Cockington Green Gardens in…

My Fab Five: travel essentials for a toddler

We’ve done a lot of travelling since the birth of our son, because both of our families live all over the place, so we have gotten pretty clever with packing and travelling light. We have our immediate family living from the Mid North Coast of NSW all the way down to Melbourne in Victoria, which…

Family fun in the Blue Mountains

I love a good long weekend, especially when it involves family and a spot of travel! We just travelled to the Blue Mountains in NSW to spend the Queen’s Birthday weekend with my parents and siblings. We drove from Canberra with a jam-packed car on Friday to make the most of the long weekend. The…

What books are you reading?

I pretty much always have at least one book on the go and as soon as I finish one then I’m straight on to the next. I have pretty much always been this way with books, but I was concerned having a baby would mean I wouldn’t have time to read for fun for a…
